What would you like to happen?

Like everyone, I get overwhelmed too. Lots of options, possibilities, and tactics to consider for my work, family, passion, business, training, routines, books, and sometimes even music! And it does get stressful at times, so much so that I keep wondering why do I keep making my life miserable. But that’s just another day at […]

Learning can be fun if we infuse some creativity into it

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. I learned that in grade school (and so did you, I know) but besides the boring theory and lame demo of the practical application (both of which I don’t remember) I never understood why would anyone want to learn that. Of course, now I know… […]

Don’t believe the hype

Every time when someone… Tries to sell you the latest and greatest product (app/gadget/financial investment plan/whatever) that’s truly one-of-a-kind. Advises (with zero credibility or authority) you of a better option out there for whatever you’re pursuing or seeking.Boasts about superior results in just 3-4 weeks/days/hours by using their ground-breaking product/service.

You don’t always get to have your way

Had an interesting exchange with a potential candidate a few months back. She expressed interest in an open position and we were very much hiring. I asked her to send me some work samples.

This is dumbness!

Apparently, stacking cheerios on babies is trendy! At least it was in 2016-17… it just popped in my feeds today. Don’t worry — it’s still so dumb! Here’s a Guardian headline that perfectly describes this phenomenon: The #CheeriosChallenge message to dads: you can still be an idiot after fatherhood. (True that!) Here’s proof! Courtesy: Sad […]

When you’re working on Sundays…

… you’re simply doing what a professional does — be accountable to the duties and following through on what’s expected of you. And yes, this is different from #hustle though the essence of it is all over the place. I was 22 when one of the human resources professionals in my company told me this: […]

If ‘they’ aren’t ever up to the mark, it’s probably you

Everyone’s got that one boss/client/teammate/acquaintance or two that are basically a pain in the ass. They will test your limits, patience and perpetually question your worth as a human being. Think I’m kidding? Well, you probably haven’t been around much lately. Just ask! While I seriously don’t have a clue how I would deal with […]

The right resources to the right roles

In 2019, it’s sort of embarrassing to say that we still take things all too literally at times. Consider the vital function of a talent acquisition strategist. In a nutshell, it’s to bring in the right people for the right jobs. And how do they determine the right match? The good old interview. A handful […]
